Building work is officially underway on a programme by Sutton Council to construct the first new council houses in nearly 30 years. This has been made possible due to changes in national policy.
The new build programme will see 93 new homes delivered across three sites – in Alcester Road, Wallington; Fellowes Road, Carshalton; and Richmond Green, Beddington. The new builds will offer a mix of one, two and three-bedroomed houses and flats, including ten that are wheelchair accessible.
“Our ‘Meet the Contractor’ event at Richmond Green held on Friday 6 July between 2pm and 6pm is an ideal chance for the public to meet representatives from Sutton Council and the contractor, Kind & Company, to find out how the new build affordable housing development is coming along,” said a spokesperson.
“We’ll show progress being made on the site as well as answer any questions. There will also be an opportunity to view the site from a safe area inside the hoarding.
“The event will be located on the green between the River Wandle and the new development and light refreshments will be available.
Cllr Jayne McCoy, Deputy Leader of Sutton Council and Chair of the Housing, Economy & Business Committee, said: “We welcome residents to come along and see the progress being made at one of the key developments, marking a major step forward for the council in providing new affordable homes for local residents.’
